Dad's Scarf -- Take 2

After abandoning the Henry scarf I was making for my father, I knit one up in a simple seed stitch. I'm not sure he liked it, though, from his reaction on the phone. And even though he raved over the gloves I made last year, he didn't wear them at Thanksgiving. Hm.

Monsters Everywhere!

My nephew Jaidan is in a monster phase. At Thanksgiving, all he wanted to do was draw monsters with Rob. One of Rob's co-workers makes these great hats, so we got Jaidan one for Christmas.

Our Daily Bread

Today Rob's Facebook status was that he was waiting for me to drag my ass out of bed so we could go to the farmer's market. He took this photo to prove we did eventually make it.

Here's what we got: eggs, bell peppers in two colors, onions, broccoli, carrots, turnips, heirloom tomato (yes, just one), satsuma tangerines, mushrooms, baguette and, in the very back, a bison brisket I plan to brine for our Christmas dinner. Yum!
